Very very interesting...
What a strange moment for the Dead. They really did just perfect things with the Brent line-up in 89' and continued that vibe into 90'. That candy-coated vibe of those Spring and Summer 1990 shows hinted at greatest to potentially grow furthur. But then, Brent overdosed, and the band was without one of its main contributors.
With these shows brings in the presence of Bruce Hornsby to accompany a (possibly) overwhelmed Vince Welnick. Reasonably enough, following in Brent's footsteps for a long-term dead-head would be understandingly difficult. Here with this lineup we have a semi-prodigy piano player, a heavy effected organ and other keyboard effects, and the boys. Many of these transitional Bruce/Vince shows (circa 90') suffer from a lack of heavily rehearsing the new key section in the band.
This show does not suffer from poor playing. Far from it, Jerry is WAY excited to be in NY, actually all of them are. Phil is playing to impress, FAST! Either way, this run, especially these last two days were excellent. Bruce's pro piano fills mixed with Jerry's enthusiastic wails make this one of the better 1990 shows, even without Brent.
You can tell that their not (heavily) integrated into their new hot seats, yet. The arrangements of Stella Blue and Franklins suffer slightly from lack of Bruce and Vince being 100% there with the 25 years of arrangements and changes. It's not a bad thing. It's reasonable. But either way, without nick picking:
Second set is sooooo nice! Every segue between each song is clean. Never a "start and stop", the drums>space stays interesting. Strangely enough, my favorite cuts of the show are normally just filled songs; GDTRFB and RandR are excellent!! For some reason they both fly by so confidently and the new loose Bruce piano really works.
A nice example of true energy and good playing after Brent.

Burnt Rich and Brent's death
Burnt Rich said: "It still just shocks me that Brent was there in July and here we are 2 months later to the day and now it is Bruce and Vince!!?? All new cast and the band is off and running w/ a whole run of rocket-fueled performances here and abroad. Always just kind of creeped me out that it was business as usual so quick after Brent's tragic departure. I know the show (must?) go on and that for example Halloween 1984, October 1991, and in other shows tragedy made for some poignant, beautiful, powerful music from this crew. To hit the road this quick after Brent passed always seemed a wee crass on the organizations part. All those mouths to feed back home, I guess."
To book Madison Square Garden and other venues like that takes quite a bit of time. You can't just call them up in August and say we want to play there next month. So the reality is that all (or at least most) of this tour was already booked when Brent OD'd. Granted they could have cancelled, but this is what they do. They were on tour when PigPen died in '73. Were they just supposed to stay home and cry and not make a living. On top of it all they had many, many families that were on their payroll, so they still needed to have income like you said. But they could still play and mourn at the same time. Even Weir played the night he heard that Jerry died. It doesn't mean that Weir is heartless, but that's the way he thought (probably) he should remember him.

Bruce was a good call
They really should have kept him. Listen to his work on the Jam that follows Looks Like Rain for a prime example of what he added to the band. This is a terrific show that is full of energy and is yet another example of why 1990 is one of my favorite years of the Dead (along with 68 and 79). Top-notch Looks Like Rain and a splendid Jack Straw as well. Setlist is amazing and nearly every song is executed well. 4.5 stars rounded up.
they break it apart so beautifully in playing in the band. cliffdiving never sounded so aesthetically pleasing.

Out with old--in with the new.......
...But it leaves me thinking. Listen to July 19, 1990 Deer Creek and then listen to this show just 2 months later. Both shows are well played, energetic affairs, no doubt. Prime latter-day Dead. Both. It still just shocks me that Brent was there in July and here we are 2 months later to the day and now it is Bruce and Vince!!?? All new cast and the band is off and running w/ a whole run of rocket-fueled performances here and abroad. Always just kind of creeped me out that it was business as usual so quick after Brent's tragic departure. I know the show (must?) go on and that for example Halloween 1984, October 1991, and in other shows tragedy made for some poignant, beautiful, powerful music from this crew. To hit the road this quick after Brent passed always seemed a wee crass on the organizations part. All those mouths to feed back home, I guess. Anyways, just a thought..... Great show and sound quality. First set is just incredible.

Dude, its all good
No matter what else, when they tuck a Help Slip Franklins into a unique location, its PHAT. Great bass. Kickin.
I caught the first three nights at Madison and now regret missing the last three nights. I remember having a good Stella Blue vid and being floored by Jerry's playing during a watchtower on an earlier night. Should have blown off school and stayed on tour. Overall I was impressed with the new sound and vigor put forth by the band. I would strongly nominate this night and the next night as DP releases in honor of Vince, who is doing an excellent job and is adding a new layer of sound to the band. Thanks all.

Worth downloading this show for the Jack Straw alone. Whole concert is solid but this is my favorite Jack Straw. Sloppy vocals but Jerry's best guitar work that I have ever heard on this song.

Has always been one of my favorite tapes. The Jack Straw and Bertha sizzle!! Bruce is just breaking in his seat with the band and does just fine. Just his fourth show as a member of the band. The Big River is nice and a H > S > F to close the set is sick.
Pre-drums is nothing exciting though well played. The Let it Grow in the 2nd set is cool and the GDTRFB is one of my favorite versions. Worth the download!!
